I have always been passionate about designing and making meaningful gifts and keepsakes and was very fortunate to able to start my own business. Lauren Nicole Gifts (name after my niece) was started in 2004 and was a great way for me to have my own business, but still move around as an Army wife. My husband recently retired from the Army and we are now permanently located in Ouray, Colorado

Learning to Crochet

I have been wanting to learn how to crochet forever!! I have been trying to learn from a book, but I think I am going to take a class at a local yarn store. Bailey likes to help me hold my place in my crochet book. He always does this when I read just to make sure I don't forget to pet him. If anyone is learning how to crochet there are tons of free patterns on line. I found a lot of them on the Lion's Brand yarn website. You just have to register in order to access their free crochet and knitting patterns. I will post some pictures as soon as I crochet something that does not look like a blob!

There are a lot of patterns online.
I am a knitter and it is amazing all that there is online. So many good yarns too.
I hope you enjoy as you are learning.

i struggled at first trying to learn from a book. then I found you tube (especially Teresa) and I have never looked back. Once I got to see what I needed to do and learnt the terms there was no stopping me. My very first project was a teddy bear and my son loves him :-)
